DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (5/3/16): NBA DFS Advice

How to break down the Chris Bosh/Miami Heat saga? On one side, you have a seasoned veteran who has helped win two championships and desperately wants to play with his team in their quest for a third. On the other side, the team- who desperately and equally want him to play- has not and most... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (5/2/16): MLB DFS Advice

Baseball is my one true love. There’s nothing quite like going to the park on a Sunday afternoon, soaking in some Rays, and watching two teams play the game that I love. But last night, Home Box Office, or HBO, if you will, may have stolen my heart in the form of Game of Thrones.... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/26/16): NBA DFS Advice

Welcome to Two-fer Tuesday. Everything you could ever want is done with two choices! Want a new President? Two choices. Not sure what to eat for lunch? Two choices. And don’t forget the plethora of NBA Playoff games. Just two. Plus, a special presentation of Canadian basketball which starts at 6pm EST. Two-fer Tuesday is... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/25/16): MLB DFS Advice

I realize this defeats the purpose of rolling out my picks one by one, but I suspect there will be a bajillion runs scored in Colorado on Monday night. Soft tossing lefty Jeff Locke (7.24 ERA) will face right-hander Chad Bettis (84.6% medium-to-hard contact rate) in a game that, as of this writing, Vegas hasn’t... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/21/16): NBA DFS Advice

It’s Three Game Thursday and the stars will be out in force. All the big boys, sans Steph Curry, are primed for huge playoff performances and gobs of minutes. There are a few injuries to watch out for, so make sure to stay vigilant all the way up to gametime. In this article, I will... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/19/16): NBA DFS Advice

Just two games on tap for the NBA Playoff schedule, but that doesn't mean there aren't many possibilities for various lineups. There is definitely a way to create a nice stars and “scrubs” lineup, soldiering the best matchups at each position. But how often do those lineups hit. I intend to have at least some... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/18/16): MLB DFS Advice

Over the weekend, a fan got a lot of attention at the Philadelphia-Washington game. Apparently, a gentleman wrote a sign that read, “I drove 4000 miles to see Bruce Harper!” Of course, anyone who knows baseball knows that his first name is Bryce, not Bruce. Further investigation revealed that the fan actually intended to misspell... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/12/16): NBA DFS Advice

Tuesday night has the potential to get real silly. With pretty much nothing left to play for most teams on tap and coaches opting to shut down more and more players, as well as only five games on tap, we could see a lot of weird lineups. I’m talking about teams that are short $1,000... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/11/16): MLB DFS Advice

One week down in the 2016 MLB season and we’re already starting to see those wild price fluctuations that are oh-so rare in August. Be sure to check the names of players dropping in price. Sometimes that aging veteran at $3,200 is a better play than that red hot up-and-comer priced at $4,500. Except Tyler... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/7/16): NBA DFS Advice

We’re running out of time! With just about 10 games left per team, the NBA regular season is fast approaching its demise. It’s sad really that we must say goodbye. Until we do, we’re going to continue to pump out amazing recommendations that feature mostly silly value plays on non-playoff teams. That’s where the true... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/5/16): NBA DFS Advice

It was probably a good thing that the NBA did not host any matchups on Monday. Aside from the obvious of the NCAA Championship game, it would have been way too difficult to research EVERY baseball and basketball game. So thank you, NBA. I look forward to making you the primary source of DFS for... Read More

MLB DFS Lineup Picks & Sleepers - DraftKings Advice for 4/4/16

You will have to forgive me if I come off a bit out of touch with baseball today. Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead is still on my mind. Who did Negan kill!? Was it Glenn, Abraham, Darryll? We won’t even know for a few months. Looks like I will have to rely on... Read More

Why watch daytime television? If you love soap operas with cheesy acting, ninety degree plot line turns, and sex scandals, just tune in to the Los Angeles Lakers every night.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (3/24/16): NBA DFS Advice

Basketball is beginning to wind down, but that doesn’t mean that you should. There is plenty of value on the board, perhaps more so now than at any point during the season. The Nets and Pelicans aren’t the sexiest of teams, in fact they are downright ugly, but their high volume, low budget players are... Read More

Sam Nedimyer's Bold Predictions for 2016

There’s something about making bold predictions that is just plain fun. We’ve basically been given carte blanche to make 10 absurd statements, support some empirical evidence, and voila.

How can any of us that live in the New York area take attorney general Eric Schneiderman seriously?

As if the world hasn’t gotten enough of Drake, NBA fans got more of him last night. During a throw in by Justin Holiday in Chicago’s bout against Toronto, Drake had some words for the savvy youngster and apparently got in his head. Of course ESPN had to cram that down our collective throat, so... Read More

Can you smell it? Not what The Rock is cooking but the madness that is beginning to ensue. The conference and NCAA tournaments are always a favorite of mine to watch.

Insane. That’s the only word I could come up with to describe the last few days in the DFS industry. The point totals for cash games have been out of this world over the last few days. Don’t fret.

I could really get used to the Warriors playing the Thunder every single day.

The Beard, the Brow, and Boogie are all out on Tuesday night. There’s about a 0.001% chance that all three will be on your DraftKings squad, but somehow, someway maybe two of those three can make it. You can do it, coach. You can do it all night long. I really hope you read that... Read More

Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019. In 2020, hopefully he's got the one he needs in Kevin Stefanski. Last season, under Kitchens, Mayfield had a coach he could control and manipulate. He did just that... Read More


Wide Receiver VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The one (and only) good thing about fantasy football season ending is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few months and put performances into context to prepare for next season. As football is an ever-evolving game, though, it makes sense to assess how good players were in fantasy... Read More


The King's Keeper Corner: NFL Postseason Impacts on Player Outlooks

How players respond and what they deliver at the most intense and critical times of the season can... Read More


Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI. This concept is easy to understand: in both Daily Fantasy and re-draft/fantasy leagues, ROI would come down to how many points a player returns relative to his salary, or the price you paid (given his ADP on...

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out. At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More

Where Does 2019 Rank Historically Among ADP Movers?

Biggest Busts of 2019: Tight End

2019 was not the record-breaking season for tight ends 2018 was.

Kansas City’s Travis... Read More

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day.
